FREE YA (and Classic) Audiobooks this Summer!!

May 17, 2014 Uncategorized 8

Want a chance to check out some awesome YA books (and classics!) for free this summer?  


Charlie over at Girl of 1000 Wonders pointed out this amazing deal and I needed to

share it too!

Head over to SYNC, an outreach program that’s sponsored by AudioFile Magazine.  This program is designed to introduce teens to audiobooks, which I think is a fantastic idea!

Every week during the summer, SYNC is providing two FREE audiobooks — one YA book and one classic.  The books are free for anyone (in the US and Canada) to download and you get to keep them forever!  Great deal, right?

There are some great books being offered, so be sure to check it out!  The first two books are available now (only until the 21st, so head on over there soon!)

    His is a great idea! I love that someone is promoting audio books. They’re great for when your on long drives or working out or yard work! I would have used them more if they were more readily available when I was a teen! Thanks for letting us know. I’m interested in majority of these!

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I read Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series, but I haven’t gotten around to his other books. I love his writing, so I’m sure they are fantastic!
